The Juno Mission is a huge mission to see what the origin and evolution of Jupiter is and to trace our solar system 's history. Nasa’s scientist hope to see why Jupiter has the most radiation (Earth has 0.39 of cosmic radiation and Jupiter is expected to have 20,000,000 of a Rad over the course of the Juno mission). Juno will be the first ever mission that gets within 3,000 miles of Jupiter 's cloud tops. The Mission is going to be just the beginning of a huge scientific exploration of Jupiter and our solar system. Juno will see why Jupiter’s magnetic field is so strong. Is it because if the metallic hydrogen or does it have to do something with the energetic particles? To find out scientist and engineers have created different instruments with different uses. One of which is the “JEDI”.

Jupiter Energetic Particle Detector Instrument
The Jedi is an instrument onboard of the Juno Spacecraft in which it Measures the higher energy particles that range from 30 to 1 million kilo-electron volts (KeV) The brilliant Jedi also tells where the particles are going, and what type of particle it is.
The electrons go through the instrument and pass through the microchannel plate sensor which amplifies the signals so that you get a current in which the modern

In all, the Juno mission will be completing 36 orbits and send the data back to the space center where then the scientists can gain knowledge about space and Jupiter. But without “Jedi”, the Juno mission would not be a mission. The Jedi provides the needed data and statistics about the energie particles, and which we can know the movement, the radiation, the auroras, and even what kinds of ions, protons and electrons are around Jupiter. The Juno Mission is a huge mission to see what the origin and evolution of Jupiter is and to trace our solar system 's history. We wouldn’t be able to see the origin and evolution of our solar system 's history with Juno… the Jupiter Energetic Particle Detector
